HARD-PUNCHING FIGHT FICTION FOR THE NEW PULP GENERATION …

TOMATO CAN COMEBACK

JACK TUNNEY

KINDLE EDITION $2.99

Tom Garrick had a heart of gold, a jaw of iron, and heavy artillery in both fists. This orphan from the Windy City returned from the Korean War to battle his way up the welterweight ranks, inspiring speculation about a title bid. Then he slugged it out with a top contender who humiliated him over eleven rounds and cut short his victory march.

Popular opinion was he had been exposed as a lucky pretender. The newspapers dubbed him "Tomato Can" after watching the blood splatter around the ring like tomato juice from a tin can being battered by a tire iron.

Now, for some mysterious reason, 'Tomato Can' Garrick is lacing on the gloves again, hoping for a shot at redemption. He has no promoter, no manager, not even a sparring partner. The only one in his corner is a buddy from the war who has never been inside the boxing game before.

There's a punch-drunk pantheon of bums, brawlers and cutthroat contenders just waiting to pound him into Palookaville ... a lonely war widow with her claws in his heart ... and a regimen of dubious training methods which may do more harm than good to his chances. But Garrick isn't going to go down in history as "the Tomato Can" without a fight.

I WAS READING THIS COMING HOME ON THE PLANE TODAY AND WAS COMPLETELY CAUGHT UP IN THE STORY . . . A FUN, FAST MOVING, TERRIFIC '60S STYLE SPY THRILLER ... GET IT NOW!

THE LIBRO DEFECTION

KINDLE EDITION $2.99

A fast paced novella filled with international intrigue and espionage.

1965: The world's greatest violinist, Soviet, Alexander Stanislas wants to defect to the West after the violent death of his half-brother. But he has one condition; he wants his Italian mistress, Belladonna Librio to come over with him.

Jarvis Love works for the Global Intelligence Network. He is young, inexperienced and about to be thrust in the explosive world of Cold War espionage for the first time. His assignment seems simple enough; locate Belladonna Librio and escort her back to London.

Major Sacha Vorinski, of the Fifth Chief Directorate has other plans.

Filled with brutal fights and wild chases, The LIBRIO Defection is a white knuckle action adventure which harks back to the great spy novels of the '60s and '70s, but infused with the high-octane punch of a modern thriller.

This edition also includes a sneak peek at Jarvis Love's first full length adventure, The Danakil Deception.
